A baker's dozen...kids in the kitchen that is!

We have a family Christmas tradition of making painted sugar cookies, and the kids have always loved it. My mom found these adorable Santa aprons and chef hats which got us all in the sugar cookie-painting spirit. We decided to break it up into 3 shifts, so the last shift was baking in their pajamas...you'll see why I'm telling you that when you see the pictures!

Shift 1: Suzan, Esther, Juliet, Ericka & Wilber






Shift 2: Blanca, Ritah, Catherine & Matia






Shift 3: Suresh, Deepesh, Jonathan & Francis

I am laughing so hard about the picture of Suresh & Deepesh. Those boys are too funny! Your parents are so sweet and do so much to make things special for the kids. I want to come to your house for Christmas next year...looked like fun! :)

They all have a story...

This year's children came to us all the way from Nepal, Uganda and the Philippines. Most of them come from children's homes, but they all have a story of trials that God has brought them through. Some of them have faced things in their young lives that most of us won't face in a lifetime. We praise the Lord for the ministries that love and care for these kids, and most importantly, are teaching them what it means to live for Christ. These children are the future Christian leaders to some of the most unreached areas of our world. We are so blessed to be able to disciple them and have them here as missionaries to the U.S. this year.

give hope

Everywhere we tour, people have the opportunity to give HOPE by sponsoring a child. Just $30 a month provides a little boy or girl with food, clothing, medicine and an education, but it also gives that child the opportunity to hear about Jesus...the only HOPE for eternity! Maybe this is something you've always wanted to do, but you just wanted to make sure it was a trustworthy organization. Maybe you came to a concert and are still thinking about it. Whatever the case, we hope that you will prayerfully consider sponsoring a child. There's no better time to invest in eternity!
